Alexander Zakreski (1799-1866), was born in Poland but ran afoul with Russian authorities and was forced to flee to France. Events of the Revolution of 1848 again compelled him move on, this time to San Francisco, where he arrived in 1850.

Zakreski was a talented engineer and surveyor, skills he put to work as one of the newly booming city’s most important cartographers.
